Kenya prepares for elections.


President Mwai Kibaki of Kenya has now dissolved the Kenya Parliament and 210 seats will be up for grabs in the forthcoming general election, date should be confirmed today.  Mr Kibaki heads the Party of National Unity which is not doing well in the polls, his main contender is Mr Raila Odinga of the Orange Democratic Movement. Despite anti-corruption legislation passed by the outgoing parliament corruption remains Kenya’s number one issue. Another old political issue is majimbo – federalism. Kenya’s 10th general election should be interesting.
